Although it isn’t sutible for games most applications work without any problems. You will need to install driver for certain hardware devices like your card programmer. Zoron a b $ Windows 7 November 1, 2009 5:36:09 PM You also need almost double the RAM (MS recommends 8GB) if you're going to run XP mode. 2GB just isn't going to cut it and 4GB is almost adequate. john_smarty November 1, 2009 7:50:54 PM i am looking to build a system with 4 gb do you think the extra 4 is worth it ? The_Prophecy a b \ Driver a c 215 $ Windows 7 November 1, 2009 7:59:55 PM Yes. If you can afford the extra 4GB, install 64 bit Windows 7 and load up your box with 8GB of ram. Can't find your answer ?
